The Charleston Camera Club is the premiere meeting place for all types of people who love photography. Whether you are an aspiring beginner or an advanced professional, we have something to offer you. We have several informative guest speakers yearly. The first meeting is always the first Monday of each month. Our guest speaker will focus on our artistic, technical or other aspects of our hobby. This is always very informative, and we gain knowledge and understanding of our artwork.
Our second meeting is the third Monday of the month. This is an excellent opportunity to see our Members’ work. Every other month is a scheduled theme for us to show our unique interpretation. The following competition is open, allowing photographs of any subject. Competitions are divided into separate categories: Color and Black & White, divided into Novice, Intermediate & Advanced classes; Digital Art, which has been significantly altered; and High Dynamic Range (HDR). If you wish, you can request to have your entry critiqued by one of our experienced Members. Complete competition rules are here on the website.
The Club also works for Members to arrange exhibits in galleries and businesses in the Charleston area and throughout the state. We have held exhibits at Charleston University, Marshall University, the Federal Courthouse, and other venues.
Club Members also plan special outings to socialize and photograph interesting locations. We can learn from one another and see how differently we interpret our surroundings. We have visited Kanawha State Forest, the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Canaan Valley, the West Virginia Farm Museum and many more locations.
